The MP5 in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is only one of the many weapons you can unlock. Even in the beta, it’s possible to take this weapon for yourself and you’d want to considering it’s one of the best submachine guns in the franchise due to its fast rate-of-fire and reliability. This guide will teach you how to unlock the MP5 for your loadout in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2.
How to unlock the MP5 in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2?
Do the following to unlock the MP5 in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2:
Make a Loadout without the Overkill perk.
Equip the Expedite 12 shotgun in your primary weapon slot.
Pick Assault as your Perk Package.
The Lachmann assault rifle will be added automatically as your secondary weapon.
Level up the Lachmann assault rifle until you reach level 13 to get the MP5 receiver or the submachinegun variant of the Lachmann assault rifle.
Once you reach level 13, you’ll unlock the receiver for the MP5 which you can then use to modify the Lachmann assault rifle to its MP5 submachine gun variant. This is because unlocking receivers for guns drastically alters the base of each weapon turning it into something else entirely.
When you’re playing the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 beta, you’re not actually supposed to unlock the MP5 yet. However this workaround will let you access the gun anyway due to an oversight from the developers allowing players to earn the MP5 receiver.
The MP5 has been a long time fan favorite in the Call of Duty franchise since Call of Duty 4 where the series tackled a more modern approach. This compact, versatile weapon hits hard, has a lot of customizations to make it flexible, and its high rate-of-fire gives it a very low time to kill. Modern Warfare 2 just wouldn’t feel the same without it.
